The eyes have different parts and one of them is the macula which is yellow in color and its main function is providing clear vision. When you are taking care of your eyes, it’s very common to affect the eyes, leading to many eye problems and one of them is Macula edema. In this article, we are going to discuss it more in detail along with its herbal treatment in order to naturally remove the root cause of the disease.
What is Macular Edema?
Macular Edema is simply the collection of protein and fluid under the layer of macula. As discussed macula is the yellow part and it swells due to the collection of protein as well as fluid making it thick. The swelling then leads to distortion of the central vision because the macula is one that makes the vision sharp. This collected fluid then causes the blood vessels to get damaged. Being one of the sensitive parts it is very common to lose vision. So, it is very important to get treatment as soon as possible in order to stop the disease from getting serious.
What are the Signs and Symptoms?
One of the primary symptoms seen in macula edema is blurry vision, especially towards the center. The colors might also appear as faded and they are not able to distinguish between the colors. Some people might also develop photophobia where they are not able to see bright lights.
What are the causes for Macular Edema?
Macular Edema is caused when there is abnormal collection or leakage of the fluid under the macula damaging the blood vessels. Here are the common causes of macular edema:-
1. Diabetic Macular Edema
It is the result of complications caused due to diabetes commonly known as diabetic retinopathy. This could affect both the eyes where fluid leaks into the macular part resulting in swelling around the tissue. If not treated it might also lead to loss of vision. It is very important to control blood sugar levels in order to reduce the risk of developing Diabetic Macular Edema. It is more common in people who are African American.
2. Macular Degeneration due to Aging
It is mainly characterized by breaking down of the macula, disturbing the vision. In this case, the Age-related macular blood vessels start to grow from the choroid and go into the retina. These abnormally formed new blood vessels then leak fluid into the macula causing macular edema.
3. Eye Surgery
It is very common to develop macula edema after having surgery for glaucoma or cataract. One to Three patients are seen to develop Macula edema a few weeks after the surgery. Sometimes this could only be for a short period of time and is very mild and can be easily treated through eye drops.
4. Inflammatory condition of the Retina
One of the common conditions is Uveitis which leads to swelling of the eye and destroying tissue present around it. It has got the name Uveitis because it mainly affects the uvea which is the part of the eye. It then spreads to other parts of the eye like the iris, lens, cornea, retina, sclera and vitreous. It is caused due to immune response affecting the eye and affecting the tissue present in the macula resulting in macular edema.
How can Macular Edema be Diagnosed?
In order to diagnose Macular Edema, the doctor will conduct the test on your eye and check for abnormality in the retina. These are the test that can be done to diagnose Macular Edema including:-
- Dilated Eye examination
